EducateTheUSA Seeks GED Prep Classes to Register for Comprehensive Database Inclusion Hoping to curb student dropout rates, EducateTheUSA is expanding its current database of 15,000 locations where GED preparation is offered

SAN DIEGO, May 30, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- "With the introduction last January 2014 of the new, more rigorous and more demanding GED test, exam preparation has become more important than ever before," says Kate Johnson, CEO of EducateTheUSA.com, a website that shares information about GED classes and learning strategies.

Even though the new GED test is entirely computer-based and many students consider preparing for the test independently by attending online GED courses, it has become clear that online learning for the GED test is not the right ticket for many high school dropouts. Combining online learning with "traditional" GED classes seems to bring much better results.

"All across the U.S. there are many GED preparation classes offered by local educational organizations, but often people have trouble finding the right information about available GED classes," says Johnson.

EducateTheUSA is striving to create and maintain a complete GED classes' database across the country. Therefore, they are calling out to every organization that offers GED preparation, big and small, to submit their details to the EducateTheUSA database.

The process is really simple; a school just needs to fill up this simple form: http://educatetheusa.com/submit-ged-classes/

The submission is free of charge. Within a few days, the information will be available online.

Currently, EducateTheUSA.com lists more than 15,000 locations where GED preparation is offered.

EducateTheUSA.com also offers online GED prep scholarships to students who are dedicated to learn and improve their life. Currently 20 students participate in online GED courses using a scholarship from this organization.

High School Dropout Facts:

  • The EPE Research Center finds 1.8 million young adults ages 16-21 that are neither enrolled in school nor have completed a high school education
  • The long-term effects of not having a high school diploma on a person's career earnings, health, social situation, and likelihood of incarceration, are so disastrous that cost-benefit analyses find that for every $1,000 spent on dropout prevention, society reaps a return of $1,500 to $3,000.
